It's clear that this must be done with the readers.conf, but what's the best
way?  Is the domain passed on to innd when a user tries to connect much like
the name based virtual hosting of Apache?  For example, the domain is not
passed onto an FTP daemon thus FTP virtual hosting cannot be done solely
with names but must be done with IP addresses.  This isn't really explained
in the man page of readers.conf so I was wondering what the experience was
from users who have actually tried this.
